The Audience Chorus
The Oslo Opera House’s Audience Chorus was founded in 2013, and has performed at dedicated events in both the Oslo Opera House’s foyer and Studio. The chorus has also performed the popular concerts ‘Christmas at the Oslo Opera House’ and ‘Summer is Coming’ on the 1st balcony, which featured soloist performances and a sing-along for the audience.
The chorus rehearsals are led by Marianne Oulie Wiik, who has a background as a concert pianist, répétiteur, choral conductor, speaker and guide. Marianne has a rare talent for inspiring those around her, combined with extensive experience and knowledge. Many will recognise her from the introductory lectures held prior to the opera performances at the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet. Marianne has inspired thousands of people with stories of both composers and their music, and not least the drama of the opera or ballet soon to be performed.
